"So, you have a twin sister? Your feelings have now betrayed her too."
―Darth Vader uses telepathy to read Luke Skywalker's thoughts and learn of the existence of his daughter, Leia Organa[src]

Telepathy was the ability to mentally communicate with other individuals. Some Force-users were able to communicate with each other through the Force, and the Iktotchi Jedi Master Saesee Tiin was a naturally superior telepath.[1] The Jedi Padawan Luke Skywalker was able to call out to his twin sister Leia Organa using telepathy when he needed rescuing on Cloud City,[2] as did Darth Vader to convince Luke to turn to the dark side and learn that she was his daughter.[3] Although not true telepaths, the Mahran species were able to faintly sense the emotions of others.[4] The disembodied B'omarr monks, who remained alive as bottled brains mounted on spider-like droid legs, communicated telepathically, with the help of a telepath response unit.[5] Kylo Ren was also an experienced telepath, capable of extracting information from even unwilling targets.[6] Telepathy was amongst the powers of Supreme Leader Snoke, whom had achieved a great mastery of it.[7] Telepathy among the Chiss was known as Second Sight. The power typically manifested in young Chiss Force-sensitives aroung the age of ten and faded as they grew older, along with other Force powers. When used to touch the mind of another Chiss with the same power, Second Sight carried the risk that both would become lost in each other's minds. The navigator Vah'nya possessed the skill and used it to connect with the memories of Un'hee, another Chiss Force-sensitive.[8]

Telepathy could be difficult for a Jedi to use, and on a mission to Mokivj, Anakin Skywalker trapped in a cell, could feel the presence of his wife, Padmé Amidala but could not speak to her with his mind, responding it didn't work that way when urged to contact her by Thrawn.[9] Mace Windu was able to send a telepathic message to his Jedi space fleet many planets away from the catacomb lair of Guattako on the planet Oosalon.[10]
